Did you give up chocolate for Lent? (Seriously, I don’t understand how you could do it, how you could survive it.)
Have you been jonesing for some ooey, gooey, rich chocolate for the last several weeks?
Do you like your brownies kinda fudgy? Rich? Brownies that seem like they might be raw or ones that are liqidy in the centers?
(No? Not sure about our friendship. If you tell me you don’t like peanut butter either I may just cry.)
If you answered yes to any of these questions, than these Brownie Mud Hen Bars are for you.
Fast forward to last week. I needed a gift for my neighbors and I wanted to make something new.
I wanted chocolate and I wanted brownies and I wanted them yesterday. (Yes, I know. I was making them for other people. But I have to taste what I give, right?)
It’s brownies topped with chocolate chips, pecans, and a brown sugar meringue. The brownies cook but stay ooey-gooey in the center. The meringue gives a sweet crunch to the top.
These are, in a word, sinful. Delightful. Wonderful. A whole bunch of -fuls.
They are good room temperature.
But if you heat them for 10-15 seconds in the microwave?
There. Are. No. Words.
Except “goddammit I gave them all to the neighbors!”
